Convention 2012 Swap - Lovely As A Tree Christmas

This card is for my Above and Beyond Christmas Card swap.  I am a BIG fan of Bling and therefore had a lot of fun glittering up this tree with Dazzling Diamonds!

As you can see it really Sparkles!

There is a couple more steps to Glittering that Embossing.  First stamp the tree with Gumball Green.

Then use your Embossing Buddy to remove any static from the paper.

Stamp the image again but this time with VersaMark.  If you look closely you can see that it looks wet.  Be sure to try to stay on the image with your second stamp.  To get it perfect you can use your Stamp-A-Majig.

Over a powder pal, cover the image with Heat Stick Powder.  This powder, when heated, acts like glue but is much more detailed as it only adheres to where there is VersaMark.  Shake off the excess powder.

Use your Heat Tool to start the Heat Stick Powder.  Only it it until it just looks wet, otherwise you will dry the powder out and nothing with stick to it.

You can kind of see from this picture how it looks wet from the activated Heat Stick Powder.

Over a Powder Pal, cover the image in Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  And the shake off the access.

With your Heat Tool, set the Heat Stick Powder but heating the image just a little longer.

And Vola!  Your tree is glittery with snow!
